The Drain Man Wins at Moonee Valley

The Drain Man was a clear winner with racegoers at the Manikato Stakes night on Friday October 25th. It was a big night at Moonee Valley that also included the running of our feature event – The Drain Man Country Cup!

This race was won by Esprit Rossa, from Post D’france followed by New York. The winner paid $11.20 so it would have been popular with those punters who backed it!

But another winner with the crowd was our mascot The Drain Man who along with the handsome Sam and the lovely Domonique met and mingled with racegoers throughout the night.

Many a photo was taken and many a laugh was shared on what was a good night all round.

Which just goes to show that if you want to be a winner, call The Drain Man when your drains start running dead slow. They won’t be furlong! Call 1800 843 372.

Wipes in the pipes causing Blocked Sewers

Do you think those antiseptic wipes, baby wipes or bathroom wipes you use can be flushed down the toilet? Think again.

City Sewerage authorities around the world are calling for people to stop flushing any types of wipes down the toilet. (At The Drain Man we’d like to agree with that advice.)

The problem is so bad in some American cities that city authorities are now saying the major cause of blockages and backflows in their sewers are these type of wipes. Some cities have even had to set up traps in the sewerage systems to collect the wipes from certain streets and then backtrack to find which homes they are coming from so they can personally appeal to those homeowners to stop flushing the wipes.

Although the word “flushable” appears on the packaging of some of these wipes, the reality is that they are far from ideal to flush down a toilet. This is because most of these wipes are made from either cotton or some other “fabric-like” material.

This means that they do not break up as they travel through the sewerage system and can cause blockages if they snag anywhere in the system. Also they can cause massive damage to equipment at sewage treatment plants.

Toilet paper however is made from PAPER which is designed to break apart as it travels through the system. It is the ONLY THING you should flush down your toilet.

So please avoid flushing any wipes down your toilet. You will reduce the chance of causing unncessary blockages in your sewerage system.

However if you do find your sewer has blocked up, call The Drain Man immediately on 1800 843 372. We aim to respond on the same day. We can tackle all kinds of blockages, even those caused by wipes.

The Drain Man touches Premiership Glory!

The Drain Man (aka Brendan Dover) is a passionate Hawthorn supporter. And like the Hawks players he supports, he dreamt this year of getting his hands on the Premiership Cup.

That dream came true yesterday when the Hawthorn 2013 Premiership Cup made a surprise visit to The Drain Man’s offices in Ringwood.

“It was such a great feeling when my team won the Premiership on that last weekend in September,” said Brendan. “But it was an even greater joy to actually hold the Cup in my hands!”

“Everyone in the office was so excited when the Cup turned up. It was totally unexpected but greatly appreciated.

The staff at The Drain Man’s office quickly gathered around for the photo opportunity and given it was a footy themed moment, even The Drain Man’s own mascot came out for the event.

If you need the best team at Drain clearing, who aspire to deliver a champion performance, call The Drain Man on 1800 843 372.
